C5: Injection Forming of Gears on High-performance CF-PAEK Drive Shafts

Tuesday 30 October 2018, 17:00 – 17:25
Hanse Saal

Session Chairs: A. Blom-Schieber / I. Fernandez Villegas


Presented here is an efficient, automatable manufacturing approach for structurally loaded carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic (CFR-TP) geared drive shafts utilising OrganoTubes to manufacture high quality CF-PAEK hollow profiles that are functionalized with PEEK gears in an automated injection forming process. Potential applications include aeroplane door closing mechanisms and flap systems. Process and quality analysis were made and design recommendations are given.
